Various - The Bitter Days Ahead (2004)

I got thinking the other day about gig attitudes nowadays and the impact that only a few years of Myspace, Internet access and the like has had on live music. Not to wax lyrical about such matters as I am using the Internet to spread my word here, maybe just because this compilation CD reminds me of lots of all-dayers and gigs that we played years ago. And it is a perfect reminder to me personally of all the fun of playing those gigs. It was put out by Ghost City Records in London. Run by a really nice guy called Jack who used to live with our good friend Seedi. I don't think the label exists anymore really. He put out a couple of really good 7"'s and this comp. The track listing says it all really. Narcosis had played with all of these bands pretty much at some gig or another across the country somewhere back then. Most of them are not with us anymore, some are, some got shit. but that's the way it goes. It just reminds me of some really good, fun times spending all day in some pub down south listening to these bands and hanging out with friends.
